Brighten up dull spots in your garden with shrubs or flowers. All you need is a bag of compost, plants, a watering can and a spade!
Don’t toss your food waste into a rubbish bin – it will just be taken to a landfill to rot. Instead, keep a compost bin or make a compost heap in your garden. All your fruit and veggie scraps, bread, tea bags and eggshells are packed with nutrients so good for the soil.
Plant carrot, lettuce and tomato seeds in a pot. Remember to water them every day. When they’ve sprouted, share and swop them with friends so you can grow your veggie collection.
Get a few friends together, pull on some gloves, grab a plastic bag and pick up litter in the park, then have a picnic! Just make sure your hands are clean before you eat anything.
Ask your parents to let you cycle to school instead of always using the car. Do you know a safe bike route to school? You could start a riding group with your friends or ask your mom and dad to cycle with you every morning.
If you have friends who live in your area, you can start a lift club! You’ll use fewer cars, which means you are helping to reduce the amount of harmful, smelly exhaust fumes released into the air. Plus, your parents save money on petrol. Win-win!
